[ originally scheduled for April; postponed to August ]

Did you know that many of the larger dragonflies are several years old before they crawl up for air, break out of their “skins”, expand their wings and venture out on their first flight? Amazing!

This show-and-tell evening with Naturalist Laurie DiCesare will feature photos, samples, and hand-outs of “dragons and damsels”:

  • exploring their early life as underwater predators
  • revealing strange and remarkable habits, and
  • identifying their beautiful and diverse habitats

— all flavored with a bit of biology and dash of folklore!

Learn how to swing a cone net; carefully retrieve and hold the Odes for photo ops; then safely release them.
